Rebecca Ann (Becky) Conover Strange, 46, Knifley, KY (1975-2021)

Rebecca Ann "Becky" Conover Strange of Knifley passed away on Sunday, July 11, 2021, at TJ Health/Columbia Emergency Room as the result of injuries sustained in an automobile accident. She was 46 years old.

The funeral service will be held at 10amCT on Thursday, July 15, 2021, at Grissom-Martin Funeral Home, 200 Campbellsville Street, Columbia, KY, with Bro. Troy Long officiating. Burial will follow in Freedom Cemetery.

Visitation is requested after 4pmCT on Wednesday.

She was born May 4, 1975, in Adair County, to Rev. Gene and the late Cathy Johnson Conover. Becky graduated from Adair County High School and Lindsey Wilson College. She was a member, teen class Sunday School teacher and was very involved with the Ladies Ministries at Columbia Church of God. She was also an independent Scentsy consultant along with her husband, Brian and loved crafting.

Becky loved life and was always concerned about those around her and was always there to lend a listening ear or a helping hand, often going above and beyond, even when she didn't feel like it herself. Her smile was infectious and her sassiness is what made her so unique. She lived a godly life in word and deed and she was never tired of sharing her testimony or the love of Jesus.

Survivors include:
  • Her husband - Brian Strange of Knifley
  • One son - Jordan Simpson of Columbia
  • Her Dad - Rev. Gene Conover of Columbia
  • Three brothers - Larry (Pat) Conover, Gary (Janice) Conover and Jon (Peggy) Conover all of Columbia
  • Two sisters - Teresa (David) Thompson of Georgetown and Pamela (Stacey) Popplewell of Russell Springs
  • Her father-in-law and mother-in-law - Bobby and Dorothy Strange of Columbia
  • Her brother-in-law and sisters-in-law - Mark and Norma Bright and Tonia Strange all of Columbia
She is also survived by a special niece, Darika Jo Conover, who shared her birthday, several aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews, cousins and a host of friends, family, church family and her special Sunday School Class.

In addition to her mother, she was preceded in death by her grandparents, Rufus and Lillie Conover, Richard and Ada Guffey, Fred Johnson, Pat York and a brother-in-law, Troy Strange.
